Hit Ho, Win Suit

Deep within the user interface nightmare called planethollywoodresort.com lurks an offer so tantalizing, we just couldn't help but share with you.

Here goes, if you agree to stay at Planet Hollywood on the weekend of August 28-30th, they'll give you a free suit, stitched together by their personal tailor in whatever style, fabric or color you choose. As an added bonus, you get a pair of tickets to see Peepshow too.

So what's the catch?

First, you have to "qualify" at a suitable A-List Players Club level. Should you be approved, you've got to return for a second fitting. Finally, you have to return for a third fitting when the suit is delivered. Yep, three visits (two comped?) = one suit + Peepshow tickets.

Dress For Success at P-Ho Deal or No Deal?



Comments & Discussion:

I don't think I've seen any promotion like this before. It would be interesting to know the math behind this offer. What rating level is needed and what is the value of the tailored suit?

Also, didn't realize P-Ho had a tailor. Is there even a men's clothing store associated with the property (other than something in the mall)? Maybe its a tailor they use for executives, employee and performer costumes?

They mention an Apex suite. Not sure I have ever heard of that.

I've guessing that the suit is worth at least $1000 to $1500, depending on the fabric being used. If it's a lower end fabric, it may be as low as $500-750. A higher end fabric may bump it to $2000 . PHo definitely expects to recoup the costs since you have to head out there multiple times.

I also note there's no mention of shirts, ties, shoes and accessories (belt, socks, tie-tack/tie-bar, cuff links if the shirt you buy has French cuffs) to go with the suit. I'm guessing they hope you'll buy those in one of the retail shops on the property.

Ordinarily I would agree with around a $1000 suit, but there are some interesting nuances to this offer that could cut either way. It could be less since: a) P-Ho's offers are not known to be high-end, b) they don't have a fashionable men's store, c) it must be this weekend and is late notice (which implies they are hurting for guests). Or, it could be more since: d) the unheard of Apex suites are really nice, e) it requires 3 visits, and f) the visits each require 4hrs of play at historic average (meaning no suit w/o 12hrs of play).

A truely bespoke suit from a top notch tailor is worth considerably more than $1000, more like $6000-$10000. The question is who is this in house tailor and is he delivering a bespoke suit. It would not be unusual to have multiple fittings for a bespoke suit. The Apex suite is a room at PHo not a suit :)

@parchedearth - @bat55w is correct. The Apex Suite is one of our "secret" room types that is generally not for sale. I took a picture of one small part of the suite while touring: http://tr.im/x9zN
